Review: Chinatown (1974)

Well I thought I would never watch something that predated the year 2000. That was smashed when I was forced to watch "Gone With The Wind". I expected to fall asleep faster than I did for the first prequel of the new Star Wars Jedi movie with Annakin as a kid. But it turned out to be pretty epic, despite questionable morals of the cultural viewpoint.

Seeing a clip of the movie on something else unrelated I decided to give Chinatown a shot. It helped that Jack Nicholson starred in it or else I might have never watched it. But...another great movie. Great plot, good acting, and even though I knew a part of the movie it still held me all the way through.

I don't want to be one of those reviewers that tells the whole story so I'll just give my endorsement for this as something that is definitely watchable and actually quite relevant to our time period still.

Plus you gotta love Jack Nicholson.
